An equity concern for MVUSD and many other districts is the suspension and expulsion rate of African American students and the achievement and opportunity gap for students of color.


The Moreno Valley Unified School District has successfully implemented the Equity Institute and Equity Walks, Hearts YOUnited and African American Parent Advisory Council (AAPAC). Equity Institute and Equity Walks are powerful district-wide practices that MVUSD have used to ensure a culturally respectful atmosphere. Equity Learning Walks occur
throughout the year within our district.

The purpose of equity walks is to sharpen and focus the instructional leadership lens and allow the gathering of observational data to confirm or challenge assumptions regarding school improvement, culturally proficient practices, and equity throughout the school. Equity walks support ongoing monitoring of implementation of equity action plans. The observational data remains tacit unless there is specific collegial feedback to staff to engage them in reflecting on instruction, assessment, and student-staff relationships.

Hearts YOUnited is a kindness and compassion campaign that launched district-wide in 2019. Through a variety of community gatherings, school events and activities, and partnership programs, MVUSD will aim to: spread kindness and compassion inside and outside of the classroom; inspire youth to stand up and speak out against bullying and violence; increase awareness of the programs, services and policies; foster a safe learning environment in collaboration with students, staff, and parents.
